Messermeister San Moritz Elite - 7" Santoku Knife - E/2610-7
The 7" Santoku Knife is one of the worlds most popular knives. Essentially an Asian Chef's Knife, it is lighter than a traditional Chef's Knife and has more of a flat blade for chopping. Fully forged.
Steel: 41/16 Krupp (Germany) High Carbon, Molybdenum-Vanadium, Chromium, No Stain Tool Steel, X55 CrMoV15.
Handles: state-of-the-art, highly damage resistant material, "Polyoxymethaline".
These knives have the sharpest edges of all forged cutlery. An elaborate 3 step sharpening process is enhanced in it's final step by being carefully hand-polished.
The San Moritz is hardened to 56 Rockwell hardness C, making them hard enough to hold their edge for a long period of time, yet it is easy to restore their edge with a steel.
